Michael Thomas cites new Tony Romo deal in opposition to CBA

The decision by CBS to get Tony Romo under contract in advance of CBS getting the NFL under contract could make it just a little harder for the NFL to get any network under contract.

Responding to the news of Romo making $17 million per year to serve as a game analyst on TV (only $1 million less per year than he was making as a starting quarterback), Saints receiver Michael Thomas — the 2019 NFL offensive player of the year — cited the Romo contract as proof positive that players should be negative about the proposed labor deal.

“[T]hat’s why we shouldn’t sign the new CBA agreement no way the announcer should be making more than 90% of the players,” Thomas tweeted Friday night, adding a #No for good measure.

Mike, Mike, Mike... how does the old saying go? “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

HOW ABOUT "No way an NFL "PLAYER" should make more in a week than the "Average" working fan makes in a year!"

And yet a successful CEO of a corporation can make as much half a complete NFL roster per year.

Again SO PREDICTABLE!!

AS MUCH AS HALF? HALF? WHAT A PATHETIC!! EXAMPLE!!!

A TRUE SUCCESSFUL CEO / TEAM OWNER COULD PAY A COMPLETE NFL ROSTER. WHILST STILL HAVING BILLIONS IN THE BANK!!!


The only thing the average working fan has in common with the "SUCCESSFUL CEO" is that average working fan probably busts his hump so his "SUCCESSFUL CEO" can enjoy his "SKY BOX"

And you ask if "I CAN EVER BE SERIOUS???!!!"

NO!! DON'T TELL ME!!!

NOW YOU'RE PLAYING DEVIL'S ADVOCATE!!!!

Re: Michael Thomas cites new Tony Romo deal in opposition to CBA

The Romo contract was pretty astonishing, but it was a perfect storm of Romo being so much better than any of the other NFL color guys, the only other great color guy Chucky is currently coaching the Raiders and a bidding war for his services developed. A lot more risk/money involved in the players turning down deals and potentially holding out.
